Dropbox Adds iPad Support, Makes Transferring Files Much Easier

iPhone/iPod touch/iPad: Dropbox released a native iPad version of its file syncing app, and it's more than just a nicer look. With Dropbox installed, iPad users no longer have to email themselves or awkwardly sync iTunes to get at their files.

Like the iPhone app that came before it, Dropbox's iPad app has a few built-in tools for looking at files and documents, including a reader for PDF files, Word-type documents, images and more. But hit the "Open In" button in the upper-right corner, and you can send files to their proper applications — if they're registered with the system to open them. iPhone and iPod touch users also get better landscape compatibility with this update.

Dropbox is a free download for iPod touch, iPhone and iPad devices. Found a killer use for Dropbox on your iPad? Tell us about it in the comments. Thanks for the tip, Ken!
